It amazes me, in this day and age, when a man would put money before the personal safety of himself and his bitch.
~ Kynette shortly before being killed by Walker.

Kynette is the secondary antagonist in the 1993 film Cliffhanger. He is Eric Qualen's brutal second-in-command.

He was portrayed by Leon Robinson.


Kynette accompanies Qualen and his gang in their plan to steal $100 million dollars in uncirculated $1,000 bills for international banking transactions from a U.S. Treasury transport plane flying over the isolated Rocky Mountains. The gang take Hal Tucker and Gabe Walker, hostage in order to locate the rescue helicopters they need to escape. After Gabe escapes, the gang along with Tucker encounter two teenegers, friends of Tucker, and Qualen orders Kynette to kill them. Kynette wounds one with his MAC-10 submachine gun, but the other gets away by parachuting off a cliff.

Kynette ambushes Gabe Walker while he tries climbing out of a cave and draws his MAC-11 on him, demanding the money. Gabe seems to comply at first, but suddenly rips a climbing pick through the snow and buries it in Kynette's lower leg. Kynette screams in pain and the two drop down into the cave. Gabe and Kynette get into a violent fight together and after Kynette's MAC-11 runs empty, Jessie grabs the weapon and attempts to kill Kynette with it. Kynette taunts her knowing that the weapon is empty and Jessie watches helplessly as Kynette kicks Gabe repeatedly in the face and stomach, still demanding the money.

When Gabe claims to have burned it, Kynette draws a large fighting knife and prepares to slit Gabe's throat, but not before letting him know that he plans to kill Jessie. Gabe refuses to let this happen, and despite the pain, finds the strength to lift Kynette above his head and impale him through the chest on a stalactite, killing him instantly. He then discards Kynette's corpse. Kynette underestimated Gabe and paid with his life.


Kynette is displayed as a foul-mouthed, mean-spirited and sadistic psychopath who is willing to kill whoever it takes to prove a point, intimidate or get what he wants.
